I sell an item that truly has no “value” except for what the market demands it has. For while a hammer builds a wall my clothes can just rest in a closet. One pair of my jeans cost a whole lot more than a blue-collar brand but honestly are made at the same factory. The only value is “unless “you know” and most would never really notice. While values of luxury cars and homes add much to one’s life mine is based on what others perceive it does for their image. Fashion is fake but please don’t tell my customers for the green they give up allows me to continue this charade well into my bank account.
FOOTNOTE- There are fashions that are worth their monies but those are one’s that stand out for their artistic or material achievements which are far and few between.
